Take part in ICE BIM’s “heat map” questionnaire for 2014

The Institute of Civil Engineers have launched the 2014 edition of their annual ICE BIM survey, and the government-founded BIM Task Group are keen for the industry to take part.

The questionnaire, hosted on Survey Monkey, queries participants on their understanding of BIM terminology and standards, also seeking their personal views on the method’s overall worth. It is the second survey of its kind, and ICE BIM will be studying it in relation to 2013’s statistics.


One question asks respondents how strongly they agree or disagree with the following statement: “I understand the concept of ‘Level of Detail'”. Another questions them in the same way about COBie.


As an incentive, ICE BIM are entering every participant into a prize draw to win both a free delegate place at the fourth ICE BIM conference in October and an 8GB Kindle Fire HD tablet.


This morning, the BIM Task Group’s Twitter feed appealed to the industry to support the survey.


Last year’s questionnaire highlighted that many in the industry had an astute understanding of the benefits of BIM, but in the post-mortem ICE BIM stressed that the level of expertise required to deliver a BIM Level 2 was still considered to be a red area.


October’s conference takes place at the Lancaster London on the 29th of October. You can register your interest for the event here.


How do you see the results from this survey differing from those of 2013?
